How to create an Altered Planner Page


Chris here and today I am sharing the "B" side of my  calendar insert i shared with you on August 3. I created to hold some of my stickers and embellishments for my Create 365 planner (which I am using as my daily inspiration and make me smile planner:D ).  This is what it looks like in my planner.


To create this project I used:

Sin City Stamps:Wish, Love of Butterflies
Distress Inks and Distress Tool- Spiced Marmalade. Mowed lawn, Broken China, Fired Brick
Gesso
Ink- Ranger Archival
American Crafts DIY paper
package insert from Create 365 Calender sticky pads


If you remember I started by gesso-ing my package insert because I wasn't sure what I was going to do on the back side. .I really didn't need to gesso this based on how I ended up finshing the project.


 I then started adding torn strips of the American Crafts papers to  my insert until it was completely covered. 

I then randomly started adding Distress Inks to my page.  


I then stamped my Sin City Stamp Images onto the piece. I restamped some of the Wildflowers from  the Wish collection without re-inking to create some "background" images. 


And here is the Final Project.

Every time I see this page in my planner I smile!
